It reminds me a lot of some Japanese war movies I've seen. It covers the harsh reality of life in war and serving in an army where men are just numbers and tools to be used for the benefit of ambitious, stupid, and/or cowardly officers. A poignant glimpse from a soldier's eye view. Its interesting and a worthwhile read while being a little too somber and serious right through the entire story (made it slightly bland). I took of two points because it lacks the political intrigue, is not entirely original in its plot, and doesn't make use of the saber-tooth tigers as well as it could. I think my view is harsher because I've read Harry Turtledove's alternate-fantasy version of World War 2, the Into the Darkness series. It was done so well, I have high expectations of alternate-fantasy history stories now.
